1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Hankyu Men's has a big and tall section (although that's not Tokyo and 6'3" may be pushing it).

    Actually, I think Isetan has a big and tall section as well, although the selection is pretty limited of course.

    The quality is not top of the line, but the Suit Company had a bigger and taller section on the 4th(?) floor of their Ueno/Ameyoko shop.

    This is true. It is in on the 7th Floor. http://www.isetan.co.jp/icm2/jsp/sto...mens/7f_sm.jsp http://www.isetan.co.jp/icm2/jsp/sto.../foreigner.pdf They have a decent selection. Probably the biggest draw for me is there measure made and order made services. http://www.isetan.co.jp/icm2/jsp/sto...ing/ordermade/ I doubt you'll find any retail location that has order-made kiton, belvest, brioni in the same building as Japan-only lines from English labels like Timothy Everest, Richard James, and domestic high-fashion labels like N. Hoolywood, Julius, Factotum, Undercover along side Tom Ford, Dior, etc.

    In 2006, I bought a pair of sterling cufflinks from Barneys Shinjuku. They were double sided, in the shape of shoes, in homage to Alden shoes.

    Here are a few accessories that I found online today.

    Montesquieu, don't miss the food basements in the department stores. Isetan has a very high-end food basement (there used to be a bar there for sampling single malts; not sure if it's there still). great bakeries there, great traditional Japanese sweets. Toraya (i believe) has a small cafe space in the food basement at Isetan.

    also don`t forget to take your passport with you when shopping and claim the duty free. For example, at Isetan, if you go to the customer service desk, they will refund the sales tax (5%).
